against john mccain. >> actually, i am utting more than i am spending so that it will be in that spending cut. john: what? what expending cut? increased spending to at $3 trillion. but newsday columnist ellis henequen -- ellis henican says i am wrong to be so cynical. he said he would cut, and he spent like a drunken sailor. >> we all want a president who will say something way before he becomes elected and feel like he is completely, rigidly tied into that in ways that he cannot deal with events as they happen. a lot of stuff happens, some of it was pretty bad, and you ant a president to is in there being flexible for you. john: he was be really flexible. >> okay. john: when he debated hilry clinton he said -- he complained that government spent some much money on programs that don't work, and he was going to eliminate a whole host of them. >> we need to eliminae a host of programs that did not work, and i want to go to the federal budget line by line, pagg by page, programs that do not work we should cut. john: it would be great if he did. he did almost none of that. just lying. >> well
. >> greta: to someone who has a good idea of how the candidates are feeling right now, senator john mccain. good evening. i am curious at this late date, is there much either candidate can do to woo votes? >> well, i think this libya fiaso and tragedy is turning some veterans' votes and some active-duty military. i am hearing from veterans all over america. they are angered and disgusted. our active-duty military people believe they can't trust the president of the united states. i am hearing from them everywhere. and so, it may have an impact, for example in the state of florida, 1.6 million veterans and their families and they can have an impact. they can in ohio as well. the latest scandals, as you know, the latest -- one of the latest is that -- there was a gathering in the consulate in benghazi of the security people. they reviewed the fact that al qaeda was in the area in big time, that they were having greater and greater danger and they sent that to the state department. obviously, nothing happened there. we now have the information that the counter-terrorism security group -- that
: last time around the president 66 percent. his competitor at that time, john mccain, 32 percent among young voters. how hard is this at the end of the day when you lok at this for people to up sign-on with the president when you can't get a job? >> okay. gerri: sorry about that. i'm asking both of you. >> youngbear voters were an indispensable part of his winning coalition in 2008. 23 million younger voters went and cast their ballot. the vast majority of them went to barack bama. that is why he has these tail mary's trying to get bruce springsteen and in ohio and iowa, trying to a kid young people up to vote for him. these are not college kids. thousands are coming out on college campuses. the mtv ws swayed. nike said, you won't have any hard-hitting journalistic questions. will these tactics work? they do, but not to the same degree they did in 2008. gerri: the question is all about whether young people go and vote at the end of the day. something that i think is really important. this new ad with a young girl. she is an actress and a hit series called girls. i want you to listen to
. i think you want to win and i told governor romney's people with all due respect call john mccain and call senator -- oh my god, i'm so old, kerry in massachusetts because both men said to me, we should have done the interview with you the last week. both of them. you are crazy not to take that opportunity. they made a decision. >> bill: not yet. it's still in play. >> do you want to put any just between us, i don't want the folks at home listening to this. do you want to put any money on this? >> bill: i think romney might do it. i think he might do it? >> and president obama. we give that a zero? >> bill: i don't know. it would have to be his call. he would have to make it. the president would have to make it himself. >> can i ask you a quick question? >> bill: yeah. >> do you think that more than a few reporters are sort of wishing at some level that the hurricane had not hit two blue states like new york and new jersey but it hit iowa and ohio. >> bill: it did hit ohio though. it's going to matter in ohio. >> i mean direct hit, you know. >> bill: yeah. >> i think that -- i'm s
john mccain 4 years ago, because of early voting, one of the reason that democrats are so panicked renew, one reason they are trying to spend every possible tea leaf and discredit every national poll they could looking at hard -- they are looking at hard numbers from data poll numbers could one state they are not behind early vote numbers is colorado. problem is colorado happens to be one of the republican's strongest early voting states. there was a survey, by pew i believe, shows that obama is winning early vote by 7 points, he won is by 16 16, 4 years ago. lou: as we look at numbers, the fox polls the two men are locked up, 46% each. and that happens to be where the real clear politics poll of polls has this race. knotted up, even. with 5 days remaining before the election. your thoughts? >> well, here is the thing, momentum is with mitt romney, storm is a little bit of a bump. his numbers have been going up. and president obama's numbers down. with regard to early voting as well, democrat strategy to get as many people out to vote who are reliable voters while republican strate
, this is a map of where the votes were four years ago. for john mccain, john mccain's votes in the red here and this beige color up here. weld county up here at the top of the state, a pivotal base of conservative support typically. president obama did especially well right here in denver, and i just obscured it with my circling, but up there in boulder county. also pueblo county, he is expected to do well. but the rest of the state, well, what are you seeing in terms of support for mitt romney this time around? >> well, mitt romney's doing really well. you know, last week he had a rally at red rocks where he got, you know, 10,000 people, and then they were turning people away. tried to go see him and paul ryan. this saturday he's got another rally at a big sort of concert arena that holds 18,000 people. the campaign says they're hoping to fill that, they think they're going to fill that. but, you know, last night president obama was in boulder which is a blue area of the state simply trying to get out the vote at this point. i don't think anyone thinks there's that many undecided voters, s
% of the vote. and barack obama just carried ohio four years ago, but because john mccain had really done no outreach to the evangelicals and they were loaded up on our colleague mike huckabee, they stayed home. 300,000 evangelicals in ohio didn't vote in 2008. obama won by 260,000 votes. if they come out in large numbers more romney and ryan in ohio next tuesday, as they did for george bush in 2004 and 2000, i think that romney could take that state. stuart: now, are the evangelicals voting positively for mitt romney? because they like mitt romney? or are they voting negatively against president obama? because they don't like president obama? >> well, the good news for romney is that it's a combination of both. romney has done outreach to them. and richard land of the southern baptist convention has endorsed him. did that yesterday. he met with billy graham about three weeks ago, graham is publicly supporting him. and i'm told that his selection of paul ryan was a huge plus, because ryan is a practicing catholic, very religious, the evangelicals, like paul ryan. on the negative side, the
both stand by. up next we will hear from both congress people on benghazi-gate and senator john mccain as well on benghazi-gate and two more prominent members of congress join the debate which may determine who wins the white house. we'll be right back. this is awesome! folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. i'd say happier than a slinky on an escalator. get happy. get geico. melons!!! oh yeah!! well that was uncalled for. folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy, ronny? happier than gallagher at a farmers' market. get happy. get geico. >>> are you disappointed even with the damning cables showing what the white house knew and what he they knew it the issue apparently not gaining the traction perhapses it should with the american people? >> i have been deeply disappointed. it is like a lot of the scandals that you and i have tracked over the years the initial problem if there is a coverup becomes much, much worse and i don't have to tell you that there were signs of the problem, our consulate was attacked in april a
john mccain was toast and the president was going to carry ohio. it's a lot different this year because the romney campaign have enough to get over the top, that's the question we'll answer in the next hundred hours or so, but the intensity at the romney campaign was off the charts. governor romney's expecting some 30,000 people in ohio tonight not that the ohio people aren't working hard, too. they have a very impressive obama operation, but the republican operation compared to four years ago, it's not a comparison. much better. we're going to have an interesting day come tuesday. >> it's going to be exciting for the whole country. >>> last minute moves. a strategy that's either desperate or brilliant, depending on who you ask. mitt romney is making an 11th hour push for pennsylvania. a jackpot with 20 electoral votes. pouring 6 million into the state on advertising. he's never led in a single poll there since he became a nominee. cnn has that in the obama category, but the president's lead has been shrinking and polls show president obama had been up as much 11 and 1 points over the s
has the overview. 179 lectorral votes and states john mccain carried. indiana and north carolina where he just barely carried and they will undoubtedly go republican. 25 votes between them. that brings you up to 204. then you have 51 votes in swing states that have at this point probably swung to romney. florida 29 votes where he is four or five ahead. virginia 13 where he is five or six ahead. and colorado 10 where he is four ahead. so that brings him up to 255. he has got to get to 270. so he is 15 short. then you have a market basket of 8 states that cast 98 elector aral votes where the polls are tied. new hampshire four votes. pennsylvania 20 votes, romney 2 ahead. ohio 18 votes. they are tied. iowa 6 votes, they are tied. wisconsin ten votes, they are are tied. michigan 15 votes, romney is one behind. minnesota 16 votes. romney is three behind. nevada 9 votes and romney s two behind. in all of those states obama is under 50. and so since we are going to get three quarters or four fifths of the undecided vote for romney i think romney has a good chance to win all those states but h
then candidate barack obama beat senator john mccain with 52% of the vote in virginia. president obama's win at that time was notable was virginia had backed republicans in every presidential election from dwight eisenhower in 1952 all the way through george w. bush in 2004 except for the lyndon johnson landslide that happened in 1964. that is your history lesson for virginia. bill: early voting is resuming in maryland, it was su suspended for two days. voters turning out in big numbers, many saying they did not want to wait until the last minute. >> it's convenient to get it done ahead of time. i can't speak for other people, but for me one less thing to do next tuesday. >> before the storm i would have said it was the storm. now i think people want to make sure they have an opportunity, you know, to get in and voice their opinion. bill: the early voting hours and days to vote extended in maryland so that may explain why we are seeing a lot of folks there voting early. martha: let's go back to a live look right now at the jersey shore. my goodness, that is the boardwalk in point pleasant wh
't. senator lindsey graham and senator john mccain who spent a lot of time investigating and this pushing this forward because of concern for our con shuts all across the world and as well as the lives of those four, pushed forward and say waited a second, we need the people who perpetrated this imcrew. the president said he is going to bring justice to them. we got one of them. they are in to your knowledge. we can't get access to them. he penned a letter signed by the. we need in there he had some success. >> steve: absolutely. senator graham, senator chambliss from the great state of georgia they got access to the guy. you would think that the white house would want to get access to the guy. nothing. here is lindsey graham. >> this duration is -- administration is trying to run out the clock when it comes to benghazi. this is a story that changes by the day. the president has been awol when this comes to benghazi, libya leadership. they have been denying and deceiving the public. the person i blame above all else is president barack obama. he has oversold the dismantling of al al qaeda
. but it's not as big as the one he had over john mccain four years ago. of all the swing states, ohio could be the most important. no one had won the presidency without the buckeye state since 1960, and a brand new cnn/orc poll shows the candidates there are in a statistical dead heat. 50% of likely voters favor president obama while 47% support mitt romney. an nbc/wall street journal/maris poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. it's a tight race in florida as well. a poll shows obama leading by just two points, but a mason dixon poll gives romney the edge. 51% of likely voters say they'll vote for the republican candidate, while 45% say they'll vote for obama. so another state that could be a make or break state for both campaigns, we're talking about colorado now, which is home to nine electoral votes. in 2008, obama won that state. but in the past, it has favored republicans. kyung lah joins us from englewood, colorado, where mitt romney will be holding a rally later on today. nearly 1.5 million people have already voted in colorado there by mail-in, early voting,
deliberately stonewalling about libya? as we said a group of seniors is demanding answers today. senator john powell joins us? >> good evening, greta. >> greta: released seven letters from senator mccain and lindsay graham. they don't get answered. they were going over a period of time. are these letters sort of futile zwres to your or something happen from them? >> no, i've read the letters they ask the precisely the right questions. first of all, katherine heritage has done good reporting on day from one. david ignasius and he complimented fox news for raising these important questions. he listed a group of questions. some of which you raised here. he also says the time line of events should be provided before the election, not after the election. if i could make that point right now, you have so many questions about the commander in chief and what he did or what he didn't do. whether his orders were clear that this has to be cleared up before the election. so we the people that employ the commander in chief can make a decision whether we wanted to rehire him. and i was comment together sen
